    charging revo 2.5 receiver pack.

    The 6.2 1100 mAh battery pack. I quick charged it with my trickle charger that I use for 7.2 battery packs. It seemed to go dead quick. Like maybe 10 minutes. Should I discharge it completely and trickle charge it? For how long? At what amps? The battery has been dead for about a year.

    This is the charger I used. The battery got a bit warm at 15 minutes. At 3.25 amps.

    Try discharging/charging the battery a couple times with a charge 0.5-1.0 amps. If it has been dead for a year, doubtful that it will come back.

    I discharged it twice with a 540 sized rc car motor. It took a good 8 minutes to completly discharge.
